I’m constantly asked things like, “What agents are taking new clients?”
That’s a valid question that I don’t always know the answer to. After all, I only tend to talk to agents about their current clients, not clients they are hoping to someday have. And agent’s are like editors — they look for the stories that are going to move and inspire them. Nothing is more transparent than an agent trying to push a book they have no faith in.
Normally, I just refer people over to the GLA Blog, but today I found another link as well. Over on the Gottawrite Girl, she shares a lecture she attended at her local SCBWI conference given by Linda Pratt. There’s information on the types of books she’s interested in and how to submit.
